Lush green hills peppered with honey-hued houses form a breathtaking backdrop for The Old Tractor Shed - a spot that invites you to indulge in Cotswold living like a local. Undeniably cosy with its crackling wood burner and thick rustic beams, we love the serene ambience that weaves through this beautifully renovated tractor shed, once a place where the owners would store their farm vehicles. Situated on the edge of Cheltenham - a pearl of the Cotswolds, and a popular spa town where rows of gorgeous Regency terraces complement Georgian crescents - The Old Tractor Shed is just footsteps from the famous Cotswold Way, a 102 mile long-distance footpath running along the Cotswold Edge escarpment of the Cotswold Hills.
Full Description
Simple elegance meets rustic charm when it comes to this cosy Cotswold hideaway. Situated in the heart of Gloucestershire, and just a stone's throw from Cheltenham, where centuries of history lie waiting to be discovered, The Old Tractor Shed is your bolthole for an unforgettable Cotswold stay. Whether you're an avid walker, keen cyclist or seasoned foodie, this special spot offers the best of both town and country life.

Set over two floors, The Old Tractor Shed welcomes you with a light, airy entrance hall before you're met with a charming kitchen/dining area that forms the beating heart of the home. Here, a dining table for six sits under a thick beam that only adds to the charm of this place. Enjoy rustling up local produce or sipping on organic cider from nearby farm shop and taproom, Dunkertons, before heading to the sitting room to perch in front of the finely crafted wood burner - the most comfortable spot to sink into a book or chat with friends and family to the sound of crackling flames.

Just a few footsteps from the property lies direct access to the breathtaking Cotswold Way, which you can follow for miles of majestic walks through The Cotswolds' symphony of scenic woodlands, weaving pathways and vast common land. When you get peckish, grab a drink and food at one of the plethora of pubs in the area where popular spots include Winchcombe, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water - all within a short distance from The Old Tractor Shed.

Ambient evenings await with The Old Tractor Shed's welcoming sitting room, where a wood burner crackles away and a large three-seater sofa and two armchairs invite you to rest and relax in good company.

Serene and tranquil, bedroom three is the most peaceful of places to bed down for the night. Cast in neutral tones and accented by leaf print artwork, there's a sumptuous king-size bed, two bedside tables and elegant reading lights that give this room a glow.
